    Image postinst no longer runs a boot loader · cdcd4782

    Now that we have a mechanism for running arbitrary scripts when the
    image packages are manipulated, we can stop embedding the boot loader
    actions in the package itself.  This means that lilo, elilo, etc will
    no longer be run directly by the post isnt, and all the code related
    to detecting the boot loader, managing the configuration, and adding
    bits about bootloader documentation is all removed from the postinst.
    
    This allows the image package to be more flexible, since the end user
    is no longer restricted to the actions encoded in the image
    package. This is a fairly large change.
